Programme Note

Back by popular request!

A special performance on the 80th anniversary of Gershwin’s death.

The vibrant music of George Gershwin is interwoven with his fascinating life story from birth in the colourful, teeming New York of 1898 to his tragically early death on 11 July 1937.

Join Viv McLean, piano and Susan Porrett, narrator in the intimate Jazz Room at The Bull’s Head for an intriguing, eclectic mix of Gershwin’s music from the much-loved ‘Rhapsody in Blue’, ‘I got Rhythm Variations’ and ‘Swanee’ to the rarely-played, classical Preludes.

“Vividly illustrated....highly recommended.”
